API 603

API 603 Gate Valve Standard

Cast Stainless Steel Gate Valve API 603

API 603 specifies Corrosion-Resistant, Bolted Bonnet Gate Valve – Flanged and Butt-Welding Ends. The standard covers corrosion-resistant bolted bonnet gate valve with flanged or butt-weld ends in sizes NPS 1/2 through 24, corresponding to nominal pipe sizes in ASME B36.10M, and Classes 150, 300, and, 600, as specified in ASME B16.34.

These valve are used in applications where a thicker API 600 casting is not needed. However, the wall thickness normally conforms to ANSI B16.34 wall.

Gate Valve Pressure Rating :
  • Gate Valve API 603 ASME Class 150
  • Gate Valve API 603 ASME Class 200
  • Gate Valve API 603 ASME Class 300
  • Gate Valve API 603 ASME Class 600
Gate Valve API 603 Features :
  • Seat face: Ground and lapped to a smooth finish
  • Flexible wedge with low center stem-wedge contact. Wedge is ground and lapped to a smooth finish and closely guided to prevent dragging and seat damage
  • Non-rotating stem with precision ACME threads and burnished finish. Double ACME threads for faster operation
  • Body and bonnet joint accurately machined
  • Each valve is shell, seat and backseat pressure tested per industry standard API 598
  • Valve are available with socket weld ends
  • Yoke bushing can be lubricated to minimize friction and prolong life of the stem
  • Body and bonnet castings are precision machined
  • Gland has two-piece construction for easy alignment
  • Each valve has a unique certification number that is traceable to the valve certification sheet with includes MTR data, pressure test report, inspection report and certificate of conformance
